    Abstract

    Recent experience of epiglottitis in Oxford confirms the need for doctors in this country—especially family doctors and casualty officers—to be aware of this disease and to be able to recognize it and to take appropriate action immediately. Some important diagnostic and therapeutic implications both of the anatomy of the supraglottic lesion and of the septicaemic component of the illness are discussed.
